. he was quoted as saying that he thought the economy was performing at near full potential. now, first of all, when we decide that 1.5% growth is near full potential, we are in terrible trouble. and i would say geithner suffers from an amazing lack of ambition for this economy. i actually think that's what's wrong with the entire obama administration, they have a lack of ambition for this country and what it can and should do. but i would also say if he believes that, that tim geithner believes that a public sector job is equivalent to a private sector job. it's not that public sector jobs aren't important. teachers are important, firemen are important, nurses are important. but a public sector job doesn't pay for itself. taxpayers pay for it. a public sector job doesn't create other jobs. a private sector job pays for itself and creates other jobs. i frankly found his statement shocking. both because of its lack of ambition and because of its misunderstanding of what actually drives growth. it's not public sector jobs. >> let me ask you this, under reagan's recovery, were we laying of

and then narrow in. this campaign should be about big issues. it should be about the american economy. it should be about rebuilding that, rebuilding the american military. american values. what we're seeing with this president for four years is a weakening of the economy, weakening of the military and weakening across the board in foreign policy. tell me the place in the world where america today is more respected or safer and secure than we were four years ago. certainly not in syria, certainly not with iran getting a nuclear weapon, certainly not -- >> hang on. hang on. hang on. let me stop you in your tracks. actually, i would say one of the things that barack obama has done incredibly successfully is restore a lot of america's very damaged reputation around the world, since the eight years of george bush and all the warfare that came with it. i would seriously question that. i've traveled a lot through europe and so on. there's a lot of respect for america that certainly wasn't there six, seven years ago. >> the question is not whether -- it's always safer and secure. is the situation in th
